Pre-Purchase Inspection

A home inspection is a visual process where all of the items typically used within a home are tested and/or operated to verify proper operation or installation. Doors and windows are opened and closed, roofing materials inspected, air-conditioning and heating systems operated. The Inspector will fill the sinks and tub(s), run the shower(s), and flush the toilets. All the while making notes on the condition and operation of the components tested. Upon completion a report will be distributed to you.

Radon Testing

Many homes in New York have high radon levels. You cannot see, smell, or taste radon. The only way to know if a home has high radon levels is through radon testing. The air in the home will be tested for 2-4 days with the results made available shortly after testing is complete.

Maintenance Inspections

Whether you are the owner of your own residence or an investor that owns rental properties, a periodic maintenance inspection ensures the identification of needed repairs and systems nearing the end of their useful life. This can prevent the surprise of performing an expensive repair with no planning or warning. It is recommended to perform maintenance inspections every 3-5 years or between long-term tenants, that may neglect to mention repairs and/or abuse the property during their tenancy.

Pre-Listing Inspections

Listing inspections are very good for the homeowner who may not be in tune with the condition of their home. A great many sales are cancelled due to the buyer's shock at the "functional condition" of the home. It may look great, but have serious technical, safety, or functional issues present without the owner's knowledge. Having the home inspected prior to placing on the market is the ideal way to identify and either repair or disclose the issue found in the Inspection Report. Obviously, repairing the items would be the most beneficial towards completing the sale. However, there may be financial reasons where the owner can't make the repairs. Disclosing them up front and pricing the home based upon that disclosure will often times produce a higher net sales price for the owner.

Water Flow and Septic Dye Test

Ross will verify the flow of water from the well and conduct a dye test to the septic system to verify the system is not failing. This test is a must for homes in rural areas.

Swimming Pool Inspections

Ross will verify the operation of the pool support equipment, such as the pump and filter, the condition of the pool and liner, and review of safety items. Safety items include drain design, ladders, fencing and gates, and electric systems. This will verify that the pool is in good condition for your family to enjoy.
